What started as art has turned into mad science. Sally Davies took a photo of the McDonald's Happy Meal she bought on April 10—and she's taken a picture of that same meal every day since. Now, six months on, the hamburger and fries seem to defy the laws of nature: They're both 100% mold-free. "The fries shriveled slightly as did the burger patty, but the overall appearance of the food did not change as the weeks turned to months," says the 54-year-old.
"The food is plastic to the touch and has an acrylic sheen to it. The only change that I can see is that it has become hard as a rock," Davies says. The Daily Mail reports that McDonald's pooh-poohed the claims that its food wasn't biodegradable. "This is nothing more than an outlandish claim and is completely false," says a rep. But is it?
